I spent the last day of 2011 and the first day of 2012 spending time with family and working on bee blocks in my spare moments:
For Faith (Fresh Lemons)
For Sarah (Freckles and Fairytales)
For Lisa (Vintage Modern Quilts)
The blocks above were for the 2011 Twice around the Block Virtual Quilting Bee.
I also got started on a new Bee (Yamtastic Quilting Bee) and finished two blocks for Traci (Hip Fabric)
I just the adore the pintuck fabric!
One of my goals for 2012 is to slowly but surely get Molly's old bedroom converted into my sewing studio. There are still a lot of boxes piled up in there, but I've somehow managed to carve a little sewing space for myself and hope to put up a design wall soon:
I will probably be posting about this all year.
Today I put away all of the Christmas decorations.
I've been off work since I left for Haiti on December 16, but tomorrow it's back to reality.
Until then, here's another little look back at Christmas.
Two gorgeous Secret Santa gifts to me from Mo Bedell (Lime Gardenias)
Thank you so much, Mo! You're the best! The pillow happily resides on a rocking chair in my family room. I've already used the bag to carry hand sewing and a bottle of wine to the last sewing circle!
And I can't resist ending with this:
Molly and Peter's first Christmas tree.
With wishes, true and kind -- Joan
